FormatEdit

Svensksong 1 consisted of four semi-finals, a second chance round, and a final. In each semi-final, seven songs competed. After they are all performed, a short period of public voting was opened, which lasted for about ten minutes. After the voting period ended, the top five songs moved on to the next round. A shorter voting period opened, lasting about five minutes. After the voting period ended, two songs were announced to move on directly to the final, two songs were announced to move to the second chance round, and one song was eliminated. The show was be hosted by Leila Tehrani.

Competing entriesEdit

SVT opened the submissions window for interested artists and composers from August to October. They invited artists to submit themselves without a song and for composers to submit their songs without a singer, as well. In addition to public submissions, SVT also personally invited some artists to take part as well. The 28 competing artists and their song titles were revealed in November. The Wednesday before every semi-final, a snippet of each artists' rehearsal was released, while the morning of each semi-final their songs were released in full.
